Now that March is here, our thoughts turn to the Motif No.1 Day Festival, just a few short months away. The award winning Motif No.1 Day 5K & Fun Run is back, with proceeds from the race benefitting Health & Wellness initiatives at Rockport Schools.
Plenty of arts programming is back too, with dance, theater, film, literary events, visual arts and more. M1D focuses on interactive elements, so festival-goers can make art as well as experience it.
Interested in volunteering with the M1D team? Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to have you join us, whether as part of the planning process leading up to the festival or on the day itself.
Entries are still open for this year’s Red Shed Film Fest on April 25th at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. Short films with a focus on small or rural communities are the focus, with films ranging from documentaries to narrative fiction included in the festival.
